Student Testimonials
" I did my undergraduate degree at Heriot-Watt University in Dubai and secured a 100% merit scholarship to do my Masters in their Edinburgh campus. I’m so thankful to the University for giving me the opportunity to study in Edinburgh, which is now a second home for me.  have made friends from all over the world, some of whom are like family to me today. This is what I really valued at Heriot-Watt- the diversity in nationalities, which allowed me to become more receptive and open-minded. "
